The Padre plum was developed in 1921 by W.F. Wright of the US Department of Agriculture. The first tree was planted at Stanford University in Palo Alto in 1923. The Padre has waxy skin that is carmine red with yellowish dots. The yellow flesh is streaked with red next to the pit. The skin is thin and pleasingly tart, balancing the sweet, dense, juicy interior. Padre plums are great dessert plums.
